Yesterday: Overcash Reunion

Published 12:00 am Monday, July 9, 2012

Though the quality of this newspaper clipping isn’t great, it shows descendants of Luther Jeremiah and Catherine Adeline Overcash, who are seated in front. The year of the photo is not known. The clipping appeared in the Salisbury Post July 5, 1964, as a promotion to the Overcash Reunion, which is still being held in China Grove. Even at that time, several of the people pictured had already passed away. Since then, all of them have. This year’s reunion will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at Mount Moriah Lutheran Church in China Grove. Hilda Overcash Goodnight supplied the clipping. Luther Overcash was her great-grandfather. Walter Overcash, her grandfather, is second from the right in the back row. Overcash descendants in the back row are, left to right, Jim Overcash, Laura Shimpock, Arch Overcash, Julia Poole, A.E. “Buck” Overcash, Daisy Propst, William Overcash, Minnie Overcash, Will Peacock, Walter Overcash and L. Mack Overcash.
